KDE Since the stream of news is still pretty much dry, I figured I'd throw in something I've been meaning to talk about for a while now, but really didn't dare to: KDE4's performance. Since experiences with KDE4 seem to widely differ between people, it might be a good idea if we, together, can find a common cause among those of us having problems.

I just updated to KDE 4.3.3 on my Gentoo installation a couple of days ago, after years of being a happy KDE 3.x user.

Hardware is a Macbook Pro, late 2007 model, with NVIDIA and proprietary drivers.

I was worried before, given all the horror stories I've heard, but so far I am very happily impressed. It works like a charm and I see no performance problems (Still have to try compositing however).

Only thing I miss is a networkmanager interface, but I will probably switch to wicd ;)
